Christian TV is corny

Big hat tip to Mike Tidmus. This is just too funny not to share.

I'm from the old Southern black Baptist church tradition - churches on almost every square mile of ancient towns, morning that start with Sunday school, then deacon-led prayer service complete with lining hymns and long prayers, and finally preaching that ends with inviting folks to be baptized.

I've gotten away from all of that a little bit because my sexual orientation has caused me to seek out God on my own.

But when I see how some other folks are trying to get away from old church traditions (be they the ones I described or others), I simply have to wonder about why some people try so hard to make religion "hip" or "up to date." It comes across as corny.

Like so:
